Result: New York Red Bulls increase lead after Philadelphia Union win

Mike Grella scores twice as New York Red Bulls thrash Philadelphia Union to move six points clear in the MLS Eastern Conference.

New York Red Bulls have extended their lead at the top of the Eastern Conference to six points courtesy of a comfortable victory over Philadelphia Union.

The hosts raced into the lead after only eight seconds at the Red Bull Arena as Mike Grella beat keeper Andre Blake.

With only four minutes played, Damien Perrinelle's cross found Bradley Wright-Phillips and the former Southampton forward buried his header past a helpless Blake as New York looked to be running away with proceedings.

With Philadelphia struggling to put together any sort of a passing game, the Red Bulls netted a third on 17 minutes as Grella scored his ninth of the campaign to all but seal victory in the opening stages.

Union's nightmare first half was rounded off when Kemar Lawrence scored New York's fourth on 44 minutes as the visitors' defence failed to contain the home side in attack.

Philadelphia did manage to pull a goal back after the restart as Tranquillo Barnetta's through-ball allowed Sebastien Le Toux to run into space before slotting past Luis Robles.

However, New York were able to hold on move six clear of DC United, who beat Chicago Fire to move into second place.
